NEW YORK BEAT

THE CADENCE OF A BUSTLING CITY COMES ALIVE.

Allow the rhythm of the world’s ultimate metropolis to pulsate through your very being, by embracing the culture, quirks and creativity of the real New York.

NEXT STOP, BACH

Who needs Carnegie Hall when one can play the six Cello Suites of Bach to the symphony of steel on steel, in front of 200,000 people each day? Enter Dale Henderson, graduate of the New England Conservatory, teacher, soloist and music activist. His efforts to revive classical music began in 2010, when he began free performances of Bach in the Subways. Today, a growing number of musicians are joining Henderson's mission by taking classical music out of the opera house and into the daily lives of commuters. Discover more classical and non-classical musical talent in New York’s subways here .
Wheels clanking over tracks, wind rushing past speeding carriages and an endless cacophony of feedback loops and public address announcements. Welcome to the quintessential New York subway experience.
Dale Henderson performs in the subways of New York to “sow the seeds for future generations of classical music lovers.”
Strains of music — sometimes haunting, often uplifting — splice through the chaos of the underground tunnels, soothing the senses of harried commuters.

OLD SCHOOL SOPHISTICATION

The Carlyle's golden, floodlit tower can be defined as a beacon for New York society. Endowed with an illustrious pedigree that includes heads of states, socialites and stars, the legendary hotel and stunning art-deco achievement evokes tradition and oozes discretion. The understated luxury extends to her drinking and fine-dining sanctuaries, where civility and conviviality meet elegantly, as befits a Grand Dame should.

FROM VISIONS OF JAZZ CROONERS SIPPING MARTINIS TO MGM STARLETS SWAYING TO THE BEAT, CAFÉ CARLYLE OFFERS URBAN ELEGANCE WITH MORE THAN A DASH OF OLD NEW YORK GLAMOUR.

A virtual cultural institution, Café Carlyle has created the quintessential New York cabaret experience, ever since the late Bobby Short held court at the piano in front of sellout crowds for more than 30 years. Today, regular jazz acts Woody Allen & the Eddy Davis New Orleans Jazz Band, Steve Tyrell and John Pizzarelli & Jessica Molaskey.

TUCKED INTO A CORNER OF THE CARLYLE’S LOBBY IS BEMELMANS BAR, AN ICONIC, PLUSH WATERING HOLE THAT COMBINES CLASSIC ART DECO AND MAGICAL WHIMSY.

Here, Ludwig Bemelmans – famed creator of the classic Madeline books for children – has left his indelible mark with beautiful murals of Central Park, picnicking rabbits and ice-skating elephants. The murals and warm live music exude a quirky counterpoint to the old world sophistication of brown leather banquettes, cinematic lighting and a 24-karat gold leaf-covered ceiling.

TELL THEM IT WAS WONDERFUL!

AN INSPIRING MENU OF LIBATIONS AWAITS AT BEMELMANS BAR, FROM THE PERFECT MANHATTAN TO THE SHERRY-LADEN VALENCIA THAT DATES BACK TO PROHIBITION.

For those who want to up the ante with something strong and adventurous, there’s the awarded Blue-cumber, made with brandy, cucumber juice, a hint of blueberry Stoli and fresh lime.
One can also indulge in an array of seasonal creations, such as the Spiced Cranberry Margarita or the Kahlua and espresso-infused Midnight Express during winter.

ON THE

FRINGE

There’s a new, younger set of gallerists curating shows in unusual spaces and featuring work that is bold, provocative and exuberant. These young, emerging art dealers and curators are shaking things up in New York’s gallery world by setting up in previously louche neighborhoods or showcasing work that expand the boundaries of art.

CONTEMPORARY SELF REFLECTION

By deconstructing and rearranging common objects, Brion Nuda Rosch demonstrates that even dry wall and recycled house paint can be transformed into an inspiring side portrait.

THE NEW AMERICAN LANDSCAPE

Exploring the national identity through American landscapes, Timothy Tompkins created a series of paintings in which the beauty of nature and architecture cannot be separated.

AND I THINK THAT EVEN TODAY, NEW YORK STILL HAS MORE OF THIS UNEXPECTED QUALITY AROUND EVERY CORNER THAN ANY PLACE ELSE. IT'S SOMETHING QUITE EXTRAORDINARY.

WHEN FORM MEETS FUNCTION

Bucking the “art for art’s sake” ethos, Nathalie Karg/Cumulus Studios taps on contemporary artists to create functional outdoor objects. Their whimsical artworks serve to reinvigorate otherwise drab urban spaces.

NEW COLLECTORS ON THE BLOCK

It’s never too early to expose kids to art. Hence, New York-based art curator Chrissy Crawford founded the online gallery Little Collector — which specializes in child-friendly, limited-edition prints.

CREATIVE CONSTRUCTION

Beyond its vertiginous skyscrapers, New York is dotted with unlikely architectural gems. From cafés on railway tracks to lofts for hire, previously derelict locales have been repurposed into playgrounds for the discerning — breaking new ground in the realm of sustainable spaces.
Discover
  • THE HIGH LINE

    A walk on the High Line – an abandoned, elevated railroad that has been converted into a park – feels like you are traipsing through a verdant oasis floating above Manhattan’s busy streets. Stretching through the Meatpacking District, West Chelsea and Hell’s Kitchen, the meandering ribbon of public space is home to industrial-chic structures and site-specific artworks.

  • FARM AND DINE

    Manhattan may be an island, but opportunities for dining with a waterfront view are few and far between. Enter Riverpark, a Kips Bay restaurant overlooking the East River. Its garden-like surroundings accentuate the menu, which features just-picked fresh produce from its own farm, perched on the roof of a stalled construction site next door.
    article
  • UNDERGROUND SAKE DEN

    There are underground bars, and then there is Sakagura. This sake institution is tucked within the inner cavities of a drab office building, accessed by navigating through an unmarked lobby, down some stairs and finally a basement corridor. For your effort, you will be rewarded with over 200 varieties of sake, and refuge from the madding crowd above.

    article
  • A LOFTY EVENT

    Loft living is the quintessential New York experience. The cavernous layout of converted warehouses offers the city’s biggest luxury — space. From Andy Warhol’s The Factory to fashion wunderkind Alexander Wang’s Tribeca pad, lofts like Studio 450 are the ultimate venues for glam gatherings. Today, they can be rented to those seeking a chic address for hosting one-of-a-kind events.
